    The European Union supports EgyptAir crash investigation in every way possible and will react accordingly as soon as the circumstances of the tragedy are clear, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said Monday.

    BRUSSELS (Sputnik) — The EgyptAir Airbus A320 plane, carrying a total of 66 people, disappeared from radar screens over the Mediterranean Sea, 10 miles into Egyptian airspace on May 19. The plane was headed from Paris to Cairo.

    EgyptAir said that the Egyptian Armed Forces have discovered the wreckage and personal items from flight MS804 295 kilometers (183 miles) from the coast of Alexandria.

    "All our availability [is devoted] to work and [to] support the work that is ongoing in these days that we follow very carefully and that we support in all possible ways to clarify the dynamic and obviously to follow up in any appropriate way once it will be clear," Mogherini told journalists.
